About this course

This online Advanced Diploma of Information Technology (ICT60115) course is the ideal program for ICT professionals keen to qualify for more senior management positions. Offered by Upskilled, who is a program member of the Microsoft IT Academy, the course takes a blended learning approach to give students the technical skills and theoretical knowledge needed to succeed in senior ICT roles.

The program has also been structured to allow students to build upon their current management skills, as well as to tailor electives to their individual career needs. It incorporates a blend of vendor specific, vendor neutral and Upskilled workshops to ensure your training encompasses the full breadth of knowledge required of any effective ICT practitioner.

Four core training categories are covered, including core infrastructure, continuity and security, continuous improvement, and service delivery and governance. The core infrastructure training cluster is ideal for system administrators, and covers both server and workstation platforms. Some of the concepts that you can expect to delve into include storage technologies, network access protection, server security, network protocols and basic backup and restore principles. These outcomes are particularly relevant to platforms like Microsoft, Novell, Linux and UNIX. Under the continuity and security subject stream, you'll learn how to ensure business systems are set up properly, available for staff and running smoothly.

The skills learnt in this cluster are broad and transferrable across systems like files and print servers. The systems continuous improvement module focuses on giving you the skills to offer solutions and alternatives to business managers to improve productivity in the workplace. Finally, the service delivery and governance cluster covers ITIL and industry best practices when it comes to IT service management. You'll learn how to interact effectively with clients, ensure consistency of support and solve incidents and problems that commonly arise in the workplace.
